My most recent bittersweet memory was today. I dropped my youngest daughter off at college in Texas today. A mere 1,377 miles or a short plane ride from Maryland separates our family reunion. The trip has been exhausting, but getting her room set up just so, was fulfilling. The opportunities she is embracing will set her up with an excellent education and industry contacts in her chosen field. As her father that expects her to be an adult far longer than she has been a child. The growth and changes are still bittersweet.
It seems a tinge of gray can be found in good news, and at least a trace of silver can be found in the clouds seemingly terrible situations. This lack of absolutes offers hope in the dark days, knowing there is a touch of silver or if you just get a bit higher above the clouds, the sun is always shining.
